Start off the new school year with these community building activities.displaying the scheets and doing a collage of puzzle pieces also displayed nearby. Photo-copying the sheets then cutting the pieces and graphing the answers could be interesting
First Week Of School Activities. I like the idea of classmates interviewing each other. Could also be used as a writing assignment or after an interview the student must introduce their classmate to everyone else.
"Me Bag" The students' "homework" for the first day of school is to fill up a brown paper bag with 5 or 6 things that are important to them. Over the next several days, they take turns sharing their bags with the class and talking a bit about themselves.
